Yay! my EV, Tesla is READY and is being shipped, by truck, TOMORROW to ATL. It will arrive sometime next week. I have paid my last 50k and I the car is mine. Elvira, my oldest, selected the "very orange" color from the palette. So very orange it is, you won't miss me driving through ATL!!! I suspect Tesla the company will die a horrible death soon, but at least I have got the car. Another part of me hopes they will survive, somehow... (200 cars at 100k is 20M, most of which has been spent, they say they produce 20 cars a week that is 2M a week or 100M a year... that would be a real company).
But wait, ah yes.. I live in Madrid :) I am planning a trip to Atlanta around the 20th just to try the car. Interestingly enough, tickets cost $2400 in coach and $600 if you stay a Saturday. I guess I will be staying a Saturday. Yay! Reviews forthcoming.
